reviews All in a Garden Green by The Askew Sisters

Sometimes the simplest approach works best. Here London, England, natives Emily and Haskel Askew deliver a delightful set of traditional songs and tunes, using only voice, melodeon, fiddle and cello. They don’t need anything else. Hazel does all of the lead singing, and her voice has a touch of Broadway show/”music hall” theatricality which makes these acoustic performances a little spicier. Great versions of “The Lowlands of Virginia” and “Three Drunken Maidens.” Looking forward to the next album.
